I did a search but nothing came up. Anybody know if there is a leather shift knob available from Nissan for the MT.

nissan doesn't offer one. probably because (according to the service manual), every time you pull off the shift knob for whatever reason, you're supposed to replace it with a new one. !!! wtf is that all about?

looky here:





notice the X next to the knob. that means:





wtf?

My guess is the knob is held on with a one-time use clip.
I agree, notice no threads in the diagram.

Interesting that the manual tranny is cable run not direct linkage. I am not firmilliar with this at all. :no:

Cable shift has been used on Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (8 for sure), some VW, and Preludes I believe. The Evo 8 I know for sure because my friend had one.

If it's like other modern cars, it has a pressure fitting. No clips or threads. Just a nylon sleeve (molded into the knob itself) that grips when pressed in place.

The sad thing is.... that means set screw bullshit...

The thing that sucks about this (and I know this sounds lame) is that one of the reasons I bought a manual is so that I could have full control over customization of the interior, including shift knob. Now while I can still add a knob, anyone that's had both set screw types and threaded types knows how horrible set screws are.
